Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | She came for the cat

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 244 calls for service between Saturday, April 30 and Friday, May 6. Below are selected reports.

At 12:02 p.m. Saturday, April 30 in Port Ludlow, a caller reported suspicious activity.

The caller said an older person drove up to their property on Paradise Road, and “a younger gal” got out of the car and went up to a cat near the home and started to pet it.

The resident said the person looked like a nice girl, but was worried a cat-knapping was in progress.

The vehicle was described as a small SUV and the caller was able to get the license-plate number.

The caller thought it was odd that the girl ran all the way onto his property, near his window, to pet the cat. He said his own cat was outside at the time but ran off when it was startled by the girl.

The caller did not need to talk to a deputy, but wanted to report the incident in case something became of it.

At 12:51 p.m. Saturday, April 30 in Port Ludlow, a resident reported a burglary after discovering drugs were missing from a safe in the caller’s garage.

The safe was hidden behind a stairwell, and the resident was not sure when the burglary occurred. He said there had been a one-month supply of fentanyl patches in the safe, which had been prescribed to his wife. Ten to 12 patches were discovered missing.

The last time the medication had been seen was at the beginning of April. The caller said he checked the safe today and they were not there.

At 1:01 p.m. Saturday, April 30 in Nordland, a burglary was reported at a home and trailer. The caller said they hadn’t been on the property for several weeks.

A deputy arrived and determined two houses, a camping trailer, and a shed were broken into; it was not immediately known what had been stolen.
